Lasting Memories #235 - Mystic Mountains

Good morning! Today is the start of a brand new set of challenges over at Lasting Memories. The theme for April is "Travel" and this week's challenge is "Mystic Mountains". This was a bit of a challenge for me. We don't travel a lot - mostly because Shane likes his home and his electronics too much to leave them for any amount of time. And when Shane ain't happy, ain't nobody happy - so we generally stick pretty close to home!

So, I went in a much different direction for my layout and used a quote - and it's not even travel related! Yeah, I kind of failed at this weeks challenge!


For my title I used the quote "Let her sleep for when she wakes, she will move mountains". Ada had had so much fun at her Uncle Shane's birthday party and she crashed hard later that night. She is a little thing - but don't tell her that! She thinks she is as big as anyone else and can do anything she wants!

I had the Heidi Swapp Serendipity collection still out on my desk after making some pocket style swap cards and thought it would be perfect for this photo of Ada sleeping. I also used this older sketch from Let's Capture Our Memories:

Head on over to the Lasting Memories blog and see what the rest of the design team has created.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!


  1. Love that sketch and what you created with it. Adorable photo, and honestly, I think you nailed the challenge in your own unique way. I always feel inspired by your artwork. I am need of one-page layouts for my children's albums (fronts and backs, you know the drill). Have a happy day.

  2. I definitely dont think you "failed" at LM challenge, I think it is the PERFECT interpretation of the challenge, I LOVE it! Great job thinking out of the box...

  3. Such a pretty layout and picture!! LOVE that you were able to use that fabulous saying!!!

  4. Love the picture and the quote. So perfect for this challenge

  5. What a darling photo and you nailed the challenge! I personally love seeing the different takes on the challenges and it's good that our readers see they can go outside the box too! Love this!

  6. Lori this is so cute :) yep I betcha she's gonna move mountains :)
